Wales Arts Health and Wellbeing Network

About

WAHWN, the Wales Arts Health & Wellbeing Network, is coordinated by Engage Cymru with funding from the Arts Council of Wales. WAHWN launched in 2019 and has since expanded to include almost 300 arts and health professional members. 90 members have participated in Creative & Credible arts and health evaluation training over the past year, aimed at supporting colleagues to deliver robust and credible evidence of their work.

Any Wales-based colleagues delivering arts, health and well-being focused work can sign up for free, upload their profile, view and post opportunities, blogs and a wide range of resources in the Knowledge Bank section. Join the Wales Arts Health and Wellbeing Network at wahwn.cymru.
